“Grace and Michael are soulmates…”
‘Indigo’
by Geraldine Solon
Mailbox Monday

I can’t believe that it was way back in 2011, when Geraldine Solon first contacted me about promotion and review opportunities for her debut novel Love Letters. After supporting her next couple of books, we kind of lost touch, until this week, when an email arrived from her, completely out of the blue.

Since we last spoke, Geraldine’s writing has gone from strength to strength, with more than ten published books to her credit, across a multi-genre network.

Indigo, is described by Geraldine as a fantasy romance, and whilst maybe not my genre of choice, it is quite short at something less than 150 pages, certainly sounds full of action, emotion and intrigue, and is definitely worth me ‘taking a punt on’ for my reading list! Besides which, I know I can always rely on Geraldine for a good read!

INDIGO

Cover image of the book 'Indigo' by author Geraldine SolonGrace and Michael are soulmates, and Heaven is the only world they’ve known.

While Grace and Michael play a game of tag, they discover an area prohibited by God. Piqued by their curiosity, Grace urges Michael to explore what’s out there, not realizing that the dark hole is a tunnel that leads to Earth.

Michael is hesitant to probe further, but a slip in the ravine causes him to tumble and land on Earth. Grace can’t afford to lose Michael, so she follows him to Earth, hoping to bring him back to heaven.

Unbeknownst to Grace, on Earth, Michael is a married man with a three-year-old daughter and has lost all his memories of heaven, including Grace.

Despite the circumstances, Grace must bring Michael back during the full moon; otherwise, she is stuck on Earth forever.

In 2011, Geraldine launched her debut novel, Love Letters which reached the overall Top 100 Amazon Bestseller List. The novel won various awards including the 2011 Beach Book Festival for the Romance category. An independent producer fell in love with Love Letters and optioned the book for film.

Being the relentless author that she is, Geraldine released ten more novels and a marketing guide-book for authors. Her books focus on deep core relationships and the human condition. She writes Romance, Women’s fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Fantasy and Psychological Thrillers.

Geraldine who loves art and film also writes screenplays; speaks at events and teaches workshops for aspiring writers. She has served as Treasurer, Event Planner and Vice President for the California Writers Club Fremont Chapter and was also the previous Managing Editor of fashion and lifestyle magazine, Gastronomique en Vogue.

When she’s not writing, Geraldine enjoys travelling, reading books, watching movies and island hopping. Her latest project is to promote literacy by building libraries in remote areas of third world countries called, A Library for Hope.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Fantasy and romance are neither one first picks for me when it comes to genres, but I’ll withhold judgement on this until you read it and provide me with more information! 😉

    Sometimes novella length is a good thing: just enough pages to tell a good story without becoming burdensome.

    • Hi Kelly,

      So long as the story doesn’t feel too rushed or half finished, then a slightly shorter length of novel will work much better for me, especially as this isn’t a genre I would typically choose to read from too often!

      The storyline is quite intriguing, as I can see why Grace might be stuck on Earth if she stays too long, but what of Michael? It sounds as though he is able to fit back into his old life, so is there some time travel going on here and he hasn’t really died yet?

      Or am I reading too much into what is a much more simple premise?

      I’ll let you know how I get on with it 🙂

    • Hi Martha,

      I had a feeling that this one would have you doing a double take. I shall be running featured extracts from the book for various weekly memes, so watch this space and hopefully you will decide to take a chance on it yourself!

      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by 🙂

  • Geraldine certainly doesn’t look old enough to have that many books under her belt. Since you’ve enjoyed her books in the past, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this one too. Have a great week, Yvonne!

    • Hi Kathy,

      Do you know that was my exact thought when I checked out Geraldine’s website latest bio pic and compared it to the one I used in the very first post 8 years ago! She hasn’t changed one bit and as you say, she doesn’t look old enough to have been first published so many years ago! – It’s so not fair 🙁 (only joking!).

      I do enjoy Geraldine’s open and candid style of writing, so this is going to be a short sharp burst of enjoyment, I am sure.

      Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your 4th July week 🙂

    • Hi Veronica,

      Something completely different on my reading schedule and yes, I have to agree, a stunningly simple, yet arresting cover!

      Thanks for making time to stop by and Happy Reading 🙂

  • Wow! This is quite different from the books we normally see featured here, I’m so glad you are taking the plunge and giving it a go. Sounds like a book I’d enjoy, I’m eager to hear your thoughts on it.

    • Hi Tracy,

      I have read one or two fantasy books in the past and I do have to admit, enjoyed them more than I had convinced myself I would!

      It is just so easy to stick to the genres I know and love so well, rather than branch out into what seems like a plethora of new genres and sub-genres – but perhaps that is just an age thing I need to get over? 🙂

      I wonder if Grace will leave Michael on Earth with his family, or if she will fight to get him to return to Heaven with her?

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and I do think that this is one you might embrace and enjoy 🙂

    • Hi Naida,

      I had a funny feeling that the premise and lovely ethereal cover of Indigo would have you intrigued, I can imagine you reading this one.

      I only hope that what amounts to little more than a short story in page length doesn’t put you off checking it out.

      I can certainly vouch for Geraldine when it comes to telling a cracking good story!

      Thanks for visiting this week and I hope that all is well with you 🙂
